This Day In New York Yankees History 4/16

On this day in 2013 the Yankee Stadium fans and the New York Yankees players sang Neil Diamond's Sweet Caroline to pay tribute to the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing. Sweet Caroline is the anthem for the Boston Red Sox which makes it significant. Prior to the game with the Arizona Diamondbacks the Yankees displayed their logo along side the Red Sox logo with the words "United We Stand" on an outside video board.

Evil Empire huh?

Happy Jackie Robinson Day for the Yankees and their fans, hopefully for real this time.
